Originals Rare Flutes 

Delicate and exquisite, these artisanal instruments were purposefully recorded dry in order to allow more control over the sound.  With a central focus on the tone of each woodwind and three distinctive signals, (Close, Room and Super Reverb) you have the option to give your sound warmth, sharpness or ambiance — or blend all three signals to create something truly exquisite.
